Paging Johnny Wendell! Paging Johnny Wendell!

Your life thesis -- C=MI -- has been proved in a scientific study:

Lohse, a social work master’s student at Southern Connecticut State University, says he has proven what many progressives have probably suspected for years: a direct link between mental illness and support for President Bush. Lohse says his study is no joke. The thesis draws on a survey of 69 psychiatric outpatients in three Connecticut locations during the 2004 presidential election. Lohse’s study, backed by SCSU Psychology professor Jaak Rakfeldt and statistician Misty Ginacola, found a correlation between the severity of a person’s psychosis and their preferences for president: The more psychotic the voter, the more likely they were to vote for Bush. [...] “Our study shows that psychotic patients prefer an authoritative leader,” Lohse says. “If your world is very mixed up, there’s something very comforting about someone telling you, ‘This is how it’s going to be.’” The study was an advocacy project of sorts, designed to register mentally ill voters and encourage them to go to the polls, Lohse explains. The Bush trend was revealed later on. [...] “Bush supporters had significantly less knowledge about current issues, government and politics than those who supported Kerry,” the study says.
Heheheheheh. Heh.

This is not a surprise.

This is consistent with other studies that show, for example, that conservatives have more nightmares than liberals.
I'm just amazed at how many of them have columns and radio/TV shows and blogs.
And aren't most of those columns and shows and blogs nightmares, Eli?
Oh, yes, most every conservative out there has a blog. With maybe six readers apiece. The reality-based side of the blogosphere has fewer blogs, but a much bigger readership -- and that without having their blogs being de facto subsidized by the RNC or prominent Republican donors such as TCF Bank.
TCF Bank?
TCF's big kahuna, Bill Cooper, used to be the head of the Minnesota Republican Party. He's also the boss of one of the PowerLine bloggers (not Hindrocket -- he works for a law firm).
